Scripture for Today

Proverbs 24:16a For the righteous falls seven times and rises again. (ESV)




Michael Jordan (arguably the greatest basketball player ever) said “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shoots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take game-winning shot… and missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

 

You see mistakes have hidden power to help us, but they fail in their mission of helping us when we blame them on people. You can fall down many times but you won’t be a failure until you say someone else pushed you.

When it comes to excuses, the world is full of amazing inventors. Don’t spend half of your life telling what you are going to do and the other half explaining why you didn’t do it. Know this – the world simply does not have enough crutches for all lame excuses.

Be determined to learn from whatever negative experience you might encounter in life and move over it quickly focusing on your goal. Every single minute wasted cannot be recovered.

The person who really wants to do something finds a way; the others find an excuse. If you ask a person who has failed in life, you’ll be told that success is a matter of luck. Don’t buy that. Success is not a matter of luck, it is a matter of a determined heart to succeed no matter the odds all around. No one walked into this world perfect we all are working towards perfection in Christ. Don't blame yourself to death, rise up when you fall.

Prayer: Father, grant me strength to always remember that my failure is my road path to success.
